The Bluebird in Your Hand
©Jeffrey C. Ashbaker 2-11-2020

There's something to hope for, whatever the change
Where essence and image are almost the same
Just like Mama told you, but it's hard to explain
You live for the happy, but you learn from the pain

Nobody shelters the dusk from the dawn
And no one should tell you, the place you belong
When lightning is striking, yeah, the rain's coming down
All of a sudden, you're the only game in town

Cry if you have to, scream if you must
There's no need for silence, among all of us
Forgive if you're ready, forget if you can
Bring peace to your spirit with the love at your command
Remember, you're the one with the bluebird in your hand

- Verse Instrument Solo -

It's hard just to watch you and it's tough to refrain
As you walk from the shadows and dry from the rain
I weep while you're crying, if you giggle, I grin
You play the card that were dealt you and you play 'em to win

--Repeat Chorus--
